Dark Moon Goddess - Pisces

Dark Moon Goddess - Pisces

Best evening for ritual: February 24 (Tuesday)

Theme: Pssions in Perspective

The Mars-Venus sextile from the last full Moon remains in force, and is now augmented by both Mercury and Jupiter, in close conjunction with Venus in Aquarius. The Sun and Moon are in Pisces now, so we are viewing this bonfire through a dark watery veil.

Although desires remain intense and focused, their relevance and endpoint may not be as clear as they were two weeks ago. It’s time to return to the source and find a place for those passions in the larger picture of the cosmos and our role in it.

This may be an unsettling, confusing time, so ask the Moon for guidance through divination, and open yourself to receive the answer without preconditions.

Questions for this Moon:

What is the larger meaning in this moment’s activities?
What is the source of the life that moves me?
What remains unchanged?
What is it like to step outside of time?

Best evening for ritual: January 25 (Sunday)

Theme: The Reality Playground

There’s a lot of interesting energy at work for this Dark Moon. Sun and Moon are closely conjunct with Jupiter, offering an ebullient boost to everything we learn or sense at this time.

The other planets are all having a lovefest now too, with Mars and Mercury teaming up in Capricorn to support Saturn, and a dreamy and sentimental Venus in Pisces serving as their muse. This all makes it a natural time for reinventing your personal reality in a novel and creative way: the daydreams might actually take root and sprout!

To top it off, this dark moon is also a solar eclipse, visible from the Indian Ocean.

Divination tonight can be grand and fanciful. Shoot for the stars! Ask for a brand new picture of the world and your place in it. Ask for several. Let them bubble around inside for the next two weeks, and see how it feels to see in new and different ways.

Questions for this Moon:
If the gods invited me to help make a new world, what would I suggest?
What is my version of Utopia?
I move to a parallel universe; who is there and what are they up to?
If I could change one thing about the world, what would it be?

Best evening for ritual: December 26 (Friday)

Theme: Finding Your Discipline

Mercury and Saturn (and, less intensely, Jupiter) are collaborating now to develop a clear recipe for making things work and getting things done.

The Sun and Moon are united now in seeking to make a difference, and Mars is enlisted to help, although his influence is on the wane now. There is an opportunity now, however, to settle into useful habits and basically “get your act together”.

This requires some self-examination and some insight into our own style of working and organizing time. Divination tonight can be helpful if you need a clearer picture of what your daily routine should look like, or what steps you need to chart out on your way to your goal.

Questions for this Moon:

How do I keep myself on track?
What old habit do I need to drop?
What new habit do I need to acquire?
What is the relationship between process and goal?

Dark Moon Goddess - Sagittarius

Dark Moon Goddess - Sagittarius

Best evening for ritual: November 26 (Wednesday)
Theme: Focusing the Searchlight

This Dark Moon occurs at the time of a quadruple conjunction of Moon, Sun, Mercury, and Mars in Sagittarius. Sagittarius is a sign of exploration and discovery, and right now there is a lot of strong personal energy coming together with that intention.

Divination work tonight should give renewed clarity and focus to your learning and seeking. Whether through travel, higher education, or spiritual work, you are searching for something new and meaningful. Ask the Moon tonight to show you what you will find at the end of the journey.

Questions for this Moon:

What do I seek?
What treasure will I find at the end of my quest?
What vision awaits on the horizon?
Where will my learning take me?

Dark Moon in Scorpio, October 28, 5:15 pm

Best evening for ritual: October 28 (Tuesday)

Theme: Into the Churning Passions

This Dark Moon finds the five other planets in a strong and strangely symmetric aspect pattern, focused on Mars in Scorpio. Mars is in close sextile with the powerful trine planets Jupiter (in Capricorn) and Saturn (in Virgo). Each of these in turn is in a lose square with one of the remaining planets: Saturn with Venus in Sagittarius, and Jupiter with Mercury in Libra. The Sun and Moon are not connected with the pattern directly, but their presence together in Scorpio brings them into indirect communion with Mars and his retinue. (And, in fact, the Moon will be conjunct with Mars shortly after noon on the 29th.)

Mars is the classical ruler of Scorpio, so he is strongly placed now, expressing his intensity and drive with great determination, either physically or emotionally. Jupiter and Saturn offer pragmatic support. This is a time when our passions can manifest very real change, remaking our personal environment and the interpersonal landscape we travel in. The lightness of Venus and Mercury at this time just causes friction and irritation, as the juggernaut of the three outer planets presses its agenda.

Scorpio energy can sometimes have a destructive intensity, as common sense and others’ feelings fall victim to the quest for drama and the need to obtain one’s desires. Saturn and Jupiter, however, hold some considerable promise of channeling that passion into something productive and practical. This Moon is a valuable opportunity to learn how to use your deeper passions. It’s not a trivial task – those passions are likely to have lots of roots and tentacles reaching into other issues.

But if you take up the challenge to do some emotional excavation work this Moon, it will repay you well.

Questions for this Moon:

What powers my anger?
What do I hunger for?
How does my passion change the world around me?
Shall I give shape to what is hidden?
